It totally depends on the faction of Anon. That Anonplus looks ridiculous and is riddled with basic grammar and spelling mistakes. It's retarded. Other groups which identify as Anonymous are more mature, or do certain kinds of hacking, or just do stuff for the lulz. Some are HURR ANTI GOVERNMENT, others are constructively making a stand through subversive tactics, some are just hacking to be annoying.
Anon cannot be labelled as all one thing *Shrug*
Something about Internet and Thin Skin. Recall that we have a person in R&R who was blocked by an artist pre-emptively because the Artist saw them posting things they dislike elsewhere on the net. Pre-emptive block without even talking with the user. Now compare that with the rumor mill of what Anonymous is. I'd wager that at least 33% of Furries don't know anything about Anonymous other than "Ebil twoll mundanes".A lot of people seem to hate Anonymous without knowing even the first thing about them. I have yet to understand why.
You mean like their six-month long attention grab toward the inanity of Scientology, releasing information of companies doing some extremely underhanded tactics (such as planting evidence to silence opposition), repeated activities to report animal abusers to police, etcetera? Obviously matters not compared to an "I ween" troll-post.People have done very good things in the name of Anonymous; lack of respect for that just seems childish and rather ignorant.
On a related note, you heard how one of the first few Whistleblowers of Murdoch was found dead, right?Hackers weren't involved in exposing the Murdoch phone-hacking scandal.
See "reveal companies doing underhanded shit and getting away with it", "frequently locate animal abusers / fuckers and report to police", "dramatically increased public attention toward Scientology", and so on. Mind, this is just what Anonymous members have done in the name of Anonymous - despite what some people may think, an Anonymous member can not live 20 hours a day in a basement, four hours sleep. They need to do stuff like have a job, pay taxes and rent, etcetera.
If by some sort of ironic divine intervention this 'revolution' occurs, the above sentence and the 'legion of furries' bollocks will make it lose anything resembling seriousness.Gay Socialist Dandy Furry Nerd Hippie Belgian European & World Citizen from Ghent
Because nationalism is so 2006.
I was a bit in over my head, but things are still happening, riots in London streets, the econmy is going down.
The current people in charge don't understand how we've built a new community online, without the old ideas of "I'm good, because I have money", or "I'm white" or "I"m Christian" or "I'm French".
That's what I was trying to do, get people united, to let them know we, the younger generations, don't care about those differences, and that we should focus on jobs for everyone, and food for those starving people in Africa, instead of going to war for oil and what not, or lowering ratings of Greece and the US. That's just rich fat pigs laughing at us, and making money.
I wanted to change that.
